Preview

Hsiao Chin, the recipient of Taiwan National Award of Art, founder of Ton Fan Art Group, is renowned by his initiation of Punto International Art Movement(1961-), who firstly incorporating eastern philosophy, and the approach by self-introspection to the field of abstract painting. Hsiao Chin‘s creations inspire from his personal experience to change through ups and downs, and detach from a life perception to convert into a powerful and forceful artistic language. He explores pure and profound meanings of life and creates "empty space" through the gestures of nature and intuition.

“Les Couleurs du Ch’an, Hommage a Hsaio Chin” exhibition presents 65 years of Hsiao Chin’s creative spirit. Since his co-founding of the Punto International Art Movement in 1961 to his study of Tao and Chi, his awareness of Eastern spirituality and cosmology is revealed in his artistic expression; from exploration, transformation and ascendance, captured for eternity with his masterpiece Dancing Light series painted in the 1963-1964 through to his Sun and Universal Energy works developed at later stages of his distinguished career.
